Today we would like to inform you about innovations from the Smalltalk software house Georg Heeg. Since our last newsletter, Cincom® ObjectStudio® and Cincom® VisualWorks® have been released in version 9.3, whose range of functions has grown by further interesting features. The most obvious enhancement is TabbedWindows, which adds tabs to the window system in a way familiar from web browsers. A window can contain browsers (System, MethodList etc.), workspaces or inspectors in the various tabs, which significantly reduces the number of windows on the desktop.
Due to current events, we have also been dealing with the topic of artificial intelligence over the past few months. We wanted to find out whether and how ChatGPT can be meaningfully integrated into the Smalltalk environment. In doing so, we asked ourselves questions like:
SmalltyAIC was created as part of the practical testing of these questions. We have found that ChatGPT from OpenAI can indeed produce inspirational text when queries are made with the context of the VisualWorks application. Feel free to take a look at the SmalltyAIC product description.
SmalltyAIC shows once again that Cincom® ObjectStudio® and Cincom® VisualWorks® have lost none of their innovative power, even though Smalltalk is already an exhibit at the Computer History Museum. Both are still ideally suited for creating new innovative applications.
We offer our consulting services both remotely and on-site. We bring all our experience and all our tools to the table. We will be happy to advise you on how your application can also be brought to the very latest state of the art through the use of artificial intelligence. Please contact me personally to plan the next steps into the future.
PS: SmalltyAIC also has a meaning: Smallty (component written in Smalltalk) AI (artificial intelligence) C (connector or interface).
PPS: This newsletter was created and sent using a new extension of SmalltyWeb. You and your firm can also take advantage of the same simple application to generate additional interest, support and added value for your clients!
